Back To School Safety Checklist

Back-to-school season is in full effect. Remember to safely share the roads with school buses, pedestrians and bicyclists, and provide children with the necessary knowledge to stay safe at school.
Whether children walk, ride their bicycle or take the bus to school, it is extremely important that they- and the motorists around them - take proper safety precautions.


See how you can help keep kids safe! View the Back To School Safety Checklist below.

24:1 Early Childhood Learning Center

The kids are the 24:1 Early Childhood Learning Center are excited to be at school. Even something as easy as playing with dough can help our young friends get ready for kindergarten. Not only are they building fine motor strength, but this activity also encourages communication and problem-solving skills. Asking simple questions help the children expand their thinking - how can we make that longer? what does that look like? what are you creating?

Find out more about the 24:1 ECLC Free Kindergarten Readiness Half-Day Program below.
